A lot has happened since the last edition of Scout the NASL. As confirmed by the NASL, both Edmonton FC and the San Francisco Deltas have withdrawn from the league. This, of course, contributes to how this series is going to be ran.
Starting in this edition, both the withdrawn clubs are going to be replaced by Cal United FC and 1904 FC; two clubs expected to start play if there’s an NASL season next year. Enjoy!
In case you missed it, the San Diego planned out the basis for their new club. Our friends over at Angels On Parade note that the new stadium could be along the ocean.
Cal United FC
The club from Orange County has reportedly grown interest on St. Louis FC manager Preki. The USL coach is expected to be the first manager for the new club.
Eleven owner Ersal Ozdemir gave thanks to the fans for this past season. Unfortunately, no news was given on the club’s status for next season.
Jacksonville Armada FC
Owner Robert Palmer notes that Jacksonville are a “team without a league”.
The Armada now have a team store that opened for fans to catch some Black Friday deals. Jack Blake and Tony Taylor will make special appearances to the store in December.
Miami did a statistical analysis on their forwards from this past season, who definitely had a huge impact on the success of the club.

Puerto Rico FC
Puerto Rico’s Tom Payne will be stepping down as the club’s president. At the moment, no replacement is yet to be found.
The Washington Post speculates that the United States National Team won’t hire a new coach until the next World Cup.
Deadspin added to that, saying the United States might host the World Crap next summer. Worth a read.
